Academic Meet Takes Place April 2 at SWOSU


Southwestern Oklahoma State University’s annual interscholastic meet (SWIM) takes place this Saturday, April 2, on the Weatherford campus.

The SWIM is one of Oklahoma's longest-running academic competitions for junior high and high school students. The 92nd annual Southwestern Interscholastic Meet (SWIM) is expected to attract approximately 800 students from 66 Oklahoma schools.

SWIM coordinator Todd Boyd said tests will be given in the areas of art, biological sciences, business, computer science, language arts, mathematics, physical sciences, social sciences and technology.

Students will compete for individual awards but also for their respective schools. Sweepstakes awards in the school competition will be awarded in three different divisions. Schools with 600 or more students enrolled in grades nine through 12 will compete in Class I; 151-599 students in Class II; and 150 and less students in Class III.

Defending SWIM team champions are Mustang High School, Apache High School and Navajo High School.

SWIM has been a traditional event on the SWOSU campus since 1914.
